              We live in the age of extremes, a period punctuated by significant disasters that have changed the way we understand risk, vulnerability, and the future of communities. Violent ecological events such as Superstorm Sandy attest to the urgent need to analyze what cities around the ...world are doing to reduce carbon emissions, develop new energy systems, and build structures to enhance preparedness for catastrophe. The essays in this issue illustrate that the best techniques for safeguarding cities and critical infrastructure systems from threats related to climate change have multiple benefits, strengthening networks that promote health and prosperity during ordinary times as well as mitigating damage during disasters. The contributors provide a truly global perspective on topics such as the toxic effects of fracking, water rights in the Los Angeles region, wind energy in southern Mexico, and water scarcity from Brazil to the Arabian Peninsula.Eric Klinenberg is professor of sociology and director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University; he is also a former editor of Public Culture.

              Now a New York Times Bestseller A hilarious, thoughtful, and in-depth exploration of thepleasures and perils of modern romance from one of this generation s sharpest comedic voices At some point, every one of us embarks on ajourney to find love. We meet people, date, getinto and ...out of relationships, all with the hopeof finding someone with whom we share a deepconnection. This seems standard now, but it swildly different from what people did even justdecades ago. Single people today have moreromantic options than at any point in humanhistory. With technology, our abilities to connectwith and sort through these options are staggering.So why are so many people frustrated? Some of our problems are unique to our time. Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza? Should I go out with this girl even though shelisted Combos as one of her favorite snack foods?Combos?! My girlfriend just got a message fromsome dude named Nathan. Who s Nathan? Did hejust send her a photo of his penis? Should I checkjust to be sure? But the transformation of our romantic livescan t be explained by technology alone. In a shortperiod of time, the whole culture of finding lovehas changed dramatically.

Today, people marry later than ever and spend years oftheir lives on a quest to find the perfect person, asoul mate. For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming hiscomic insight at modern romance, but for ModernRomance, the book, he decided he needed to takethings to another level. He teamed up with NYUsociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massiveresearch project, including hundreds of interviewsand focus groups conducted everywhere fromTokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita.
